Review:

"Blachowicz and Ogle once again demonstrate their preeminence in the field as they address the most complicated and important challenge faced by literacy students and teachers. They provide a uniquely contextualized and research-based view of reading comprehension as students’ print-based learning from fiction and informational texts. They go on to guide teachers’ planning, assessment, and instruction to promote independence. The detailed, accessible nature of this book will make it a treasured reference for all teachers concerned about their students’ academic success." - David J. Chard, Southern Methodist University, USA

"This is a practical, readable, research-based volume. As a result of their extensive work in classrooms, Blachowicz and Ogle show us how to create contexts that support each student's journey toward independence. The second edition brings the book up to date by integrating the latest research on vocabulary development and informational literacy, including reading on the internet and strategies for effective instruction. Whether you are a new teacher planning instruction for the first time or an experienced veteran seeking refinements to your reading curriculum, you will find this text a rich source of teaching ideas." - Nancy Padak, Department of Teaching, Leadership, and Curriculum Studies, Kent State University, USA

"This artfully constructed book allows any teacher, novice or experienced, to walk away with an increased knowledge base on reading comprehension. The authors have succeeded in conveying this complex topic in a comprehensive yet easy-to-read and practical format. The volume provides real-life scenarios that can help teachers actively, constructively, and purposefully scaffold comprehension instruction to promote skillful, strategic, self-monitored, and critical reading." - Carrice Cummins, PhD, Louisiana Tech University, USA

"The user-friendly format allows teachers to read the book from cover to cover or to sample individual chapters based on interests or needs. From strategies for reading fiction and nonfiction to ideas for engaging in research and other learning tasks, Blachowicz and Ogle’s informative work is packed with useful explanations, techniques, and tips for helping students become better comprehenders. Based on extensive work with teachers and students in schools, this practical book deserves a special place on any literacy educator’s bookshelf." - Rachel Brown, Syracuse University, USA
